Fernando Kallas of the same outlet also reported PSG set a €260 million (£227 million) price tag after paying €222 million (£194 million) for Neymar over the summer. So good players can always play together.

PSG always seemed like a stop gap between Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Brazil forward Neymar will resume training on Sunday after foot surgery as he bids to be fit for next month's World Cup, his club Paris St Germain said on Saturday.

Neymar apparently announced the news to his teammates at a dinner hosted by Thiago Silva, that other players like Marco Verratti, Javier Pastore and Marquinhos attended.

The 26-year-old is wanted by Real Madrid, who are planning to offer close to £230 million to get him signed for the Los Blancos this summer.

When asked about the possible interest Zidane avoided answering the question, instead moving the focus onto Madrid's Champions League final at the end of May. On the pitch there is a chemistry.

"I don't know if they are negotiating for Neymar". "The one after the injury, because we had two important games after that against the second best team in France, Marseille, and then the cup semi-final, and then another rest".

PSG broke the world transfer record to acquire Neymar from Barcelona last summer, and the Brazilian scored 28 times in 30 appearances for the French giants before sustaining a broken metatarsal in February.
